Information provided by the Slovak authorities has helped to prevent several terrorist attacks abroad, said Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák on private broadcaster Radio Expres’s ‘Braňo Závodský Naživo’ talk show.

“Most recently, information that we provided, helped lead to the arrest of people suspected of planning a terrorist attack in Denmark,” said Kaliňák as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Slovakia is “in a very safe space” at the moment, said the minister. “Obviously, you can never rule out all eventualities”, and “lone wolves” represent a risk to all, he was quick to add.
